Epica Enters The Studio To Record Their New Album

Dutch symphonic metal giant Epica recently have entered Sandlane Recording Facilities to record their new album and follow-up to the successful The Holographic Principle. The band will be recording again together with producer Joost van den Broek (POWERWOLF, AYREON).

In the studio the band is joined by Panda Productions, who will record behind the scene footage of this recording process. The band just launched their first studio vlog on the band’s YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/JQECj9jbQ_U

Simone Simons comment: “Welcome to the behind the scenes of the making of EPICA 8. In this first video, we are working hard on the pre-production of our new album, making sure all details are perfect. As always, it was a pleasure to spend time with the band and Joost. I am so happy with how the songs evolved and can’t wait for you all to hear them!”

Epica new album is scheduled for release this fall through Nuclear Blast Records.  In support of this album, the band will comprehensively tour Europe during the “Epic Apocalypse” co-headlining tour with Apocalyptica and support-act Wheel.
